Designing for Print

Quality printing starts with properly designed art files.  Since we are a printer, letting us design your art will ensure it's perfectly suited to the press it's printing on.

Keys to Designing for Print

Art must be in the correct color space.  Most programs and images start in RGB (which is best suited to be displayed on a monitor).  If each item is not properly converted to CMYK, you will often get colors that are off.

The resolution of your images must be calibrated for printing on a press.  Just because something looks okay on a computer monitor does not mean it will look good when printed.  Monitors work at 72 dpi (dots per inch) to 120 dpi.  Printing must be 300 dpi or higher to be optimized.

Nice crisp edges on logos and clip art start with vector based images.  Some do-it-yourself design programs or amature designers work with bitmapped images. 

We will make sure your art is properly sized and includes bleeds and crop marks.
